    A few Q's

    Okay, I'm interested. But first...
    Does it come with the wrap-around bug net? Or just the little screened windows?
    Is the tarp detachable? Can it be used separately?
    Any reviews from HF users?
    Thanks guys!

    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    inspectorguy sorry bro. I've wondered about this setup for a LONG time and with the free shipping on the sale price I couldn't pass it up.

    this vid is what sold me. there is a LOT more to this design that meets the eye to say the least. I pictured a claustrophobic coffin, but it seems to be none of those things. I had never seen more then the two stock pictures you always see. check it out

    I tried and tried but could not embed the vid, can someone tell me how to do this via PM? I'd appreciate it

    as per Sir Opie's guidance below appreciate that mate .... lol so simple a monkey could do it ... just not this monkey


    one other thing I made note of particularly, watch the girl as see goes to stand up, the hammock appears to be formed from many roughly 14 inch strips. never seen that before from ANY hammock. and when I ask myself why.... well I'm not rocket man, but my guess is they form a shape to cradles your body, your bum goes lower no matter what you are in, look at the way it seems to cradle her body, particularly from bum on down. just guessing but I guess there is MUCH less knee strain as the knees seem supported not crossing over the middle ridge u get in a gathered end hammock. , so many little things to look at if u take your time and pause vid. I particularly like the way the noseeum and .... er tarp flaps work and can be stowed away easily.

    the other is how u have a gear stow at head and foot end. not sure how big they are but seems a wonderful idea, I keep think I'd like this out of my pack, and just like being in a tent , reach over and get it, no fussing around with zippers and straps to get in and out. we shall see.

    Yeah. The video caught my eye as well. My finger was on the trigger anyways, but the FREE shipping pushed me over the edge.

    Thanks! no really... Thanks! Made it an easier sell for the wife.

    I didn't know they were a bridge design. Has anyone hung a UQ on one of these yet?

    Okay, I've done more homework and now...

    I have more questions.
    Actually I have one question. Is this deal for the "old" design or for the "2011" design?
    At $99.99 (shipping included) I'm thinking it's gotta be them clearing out old inventory. But I thought I would ask anyway.
    And at $99.99 (shipping included) I'm thinking I gotta at least try it. What the hey... worst case scenario: I mail it back to them.

    CORRECTION:
    Shipping is NOT included
    it's $12.95
    total is $112.94

    CORRECTION CORRECTION:
    Shipping IS included
    total is $99.99

    I've got both the new and the old. New is better.

    Fire away with questions if you want.
